As much as Democrats want to downplay the idea of a fight between the Sanders and Clinton wings of the party, it keeps coming back.
Bernie is in the catbird seat. Yes he is total pussy for letting Clinton walk all over him, and he is a huge sellout. But he has the last viable brand of magical thinking.
The Clinton wing of the DNC is a beuracratic leviathan that absorbs and corrupts anyone in its path. That is hardly uplifting. Bernie has strong rhetoric, and the only semblance of statesmanship.
